Women know the importance of a good watch. Whether it’s used to accessorize or to stand out on its own, an excellent timepiece can make all the difference in the world when it comes to the overall fashion impact a woman makes on her audience. It’s unlikely that you’ll find a single watch that satisfies every occasion, but ideally, you’d like to have a few that are versatile and cover just about every possible outing you might have throughout your daily life.

When it’s time to make a choice what kind of watch to buy, the choices are so endless it can be discouraging unless you have the time to peruse catalogs or internet pages for days on end. Few have that luxury, so it’s a good idea to break your watch choice down to a series of smaller choices. In this way, you can narrow things down to a more manageable number of selections. Once you’ve done that, it will just be a matter of picking the one that strikes your personal fancy in just the right way.

If you’re looking for something specific and unique, like a minute repeater watch, you need to find a dealer that can deliver those specifications with style. Here are three basic considerations that you need to make every time you decide it’s time for a new watch.

Size

The size of the face will likely tell people a lot about what kind of stylistic impression you’re trying to make. Smaller faces and slender bands are usually associated with femininity and subtlety. On the other hand, a large face is often a bold selection, and it can also reveal a playfulness and sportiness on behalf of the wearer. Maybe you’re one or the other all the time, but most likely you’ll like to have some of each on hand depending on your mood and the occasion.

Era

For the next choice, ladies have to decide between going with a watch from a vintage era and finding something that’s a bit more of a modern choice. Many women have more of a one or the other approach to this decision. It’s hard to knock the look of a vintage watch with a style that has stood the test of time, as it shows the wearer possesses wonderful taste. But a woman who can pull off a modern watch, steps away from the classic look may have more of an opportunity to stand out from the crowd.

Material

Rose gold is the one type of watch that is desired by just about all women, because of how it plays off just about any skin tone. The problem is that you’re going to pay for that special luster. Gold, silver, polished stainless steel and aluminum is just some of the other options. Whether there is a place in your wardrobe for those largely depends on your personal style.

Once you’ve used these three qualifiers to group your favorite watches, choosing will be much easier. Or, if you actually enjoy browsing for days, you can do it that way too.
